I too am 14 days post-op from my S1 & L5 single level fusion. Thought I was going to go nuts. Since I live in Florida, I craved the sunshine, so I went out long enough to walk down our driveway to get the mail ( I am still in trouble over that one), Hubby is being over protctive now cause the mailbox is at the bottom of a steep hill.
So me and Ice Cream are getting along GREAT
It's amazing what things you can do with ice cream. I am planning on putting a treadmill on layaway as soon as I get the Doctors orders. Thursday is my first post-op appt, for a wound check (even though I have 1-2 nurses here everyday).
I was told I could drive right away and long as I don't go far, just around town for a short distance.
He said he will take off the brace at 4-6 weeks and start PT at 2-4 weeks.
I can hardly wait
My Nurses have told him I am WAY past thier other patients, YIPPEE!!
